Broward County Drug Possession Attorney
Possession of Drugs Information
When arrested or charged with possession of drugs, the charges can be minor or severe, depending on the circumstances surrounding the arrest. Some drug possession charges can be misdemeanors, but others can lead to felony charges. Whenever you find yourself in this type of situation, it is vital you contact a Broward County criminal defense attorney to assist you in fighting these charges. The ramifications of having a drug conviction on your record can affect the rest of your life.
The type of drug involved as well as the amount will impact potential charges and final sentencing upon a conviction. If you have in your possession any items that may indicate an intent to distribute this can substantially add to sentencing. The larger the amount of the drugs in your possession, the greater the likelihood that additional charges of possession with intent to sell will be included, resulting in stiffer fines, penalties and jail time if convicted.
When you are facing a first offense, or a minor amount of drug possession, it is possible to obtain alternative sentencing, most often a drug rehabilitation or treatment program to avoid imprisonment or conviction. However, you need a skilled defense lawyer to properly present your case to prosecutors to maximize the potential for any drug related charge.
